Psychedelic Transmorphing Alter Egos – [soundbyte a]
Alter Echo‘s got a rad soundtrack.
It’s even so rad, I fell in love with it and the prospect of, one fine day, experiencing this hidden PS2/Xbox gem from 2003.
These tracks are long, immersive, and slightly psychedelic, courtesy of Jerry Berlongieri. Also, the box cover promises a mind-blowing action experience, and the artwork is finger-licking enticing as well.
What could possibly go wrong?
The B-movie script. The archaic camera controls.
The god-awful reflex mini-games.
The gameplay, however, had a lot of potential.
Being able to switch between three attack modes “on the fly” while stringing combo after combo: a rock solid idea.
This, for example.
You can see me struggle through the first stages below.
Don’t bother asking why there are French subtitles though. J’en ai aucune idée.
I came for the music, I stayed … for the music.
Goodbye personal hype bubble.
It was fun these last 13 years.
